Joey, Chandler or Ross — which of the three main male characters on NBC’s “Friends” will be transformed into Ted Kennedy?
NBC News reports that Matthew Perry, who played Chandler on the long-running sitcom, “will play liberal lion Ted Kennedy in Reelz’s four-part miniseries ‘The Kennedys — After Camelot,’ a sequel to a 2011 miniseries that aired on the same cable channel.”
The project is set in the years after the assassinations of Kennedy’s brothers John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy, when Ted Kennedy served a long term in the U.S. Senate. Katie Holmes is lined up to reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
The miniseries, set to premiere in spring 2017, is based on the book “After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present,” by J. Randy Taraborrelli.
